Love Feast 2009!!!

On Tuesday night, FreeChurch Toronto had a Love Feast to celebrate love as God had intended. Basically it was a big feast to the church members as well as the community at large. The place was packed to the brim with nary an empty seat in sight.

Our new Living Room (small group) was officially inducted this past weekend after completing the 8-week long membership series. As the new members, our group was charged with the task of being the hands on help for the day. Our crew of folks did everything from helping with the cooking, decorating the place, serving dishes and then cleaning the whole place up. I think most of us ended up doing a little bit of everything. It was actual an excellent opportunity to further bond with each other as well as with the existing church members.

What was awesome was the number of people that just walked off the streets, came in and had a meal with us. We were blessed to have them eat with us. I did feel bad about one thing though. There was this group of elderly Chinese people that came in together and I saw it as an opportunity to try and connect with them. I served them some dish and tried talking to them with my Cantonese speaking powers. But alas, it was to no avail... they were Mandarin speakers. They nodded and smiled, maybe they were happy that I tried, I don't know. I wanted to bridge that connection but I couldn't because of the language barrier. It was too bad. I can only hope that next time there would be some Cantonese speakers and I could talk to them.

Anywho, everything was indeed awesome. The course for the evening was prepared by a sweet lady named Alex, and the meal was actually completely vegan. I'm pretty sure it was my first vegan meal and it was delicious. The other church members were tasked with bringing in the desserts, and boy did they bring in desserts. Let me just say that I am a huge fan of chocolate and there were tons of chocolatey treats! It ruled! (They gave me some to take home :)

The mountains of dessert.

After the clean up and everything, it was after midnight and I just couldn't believe it. Our group was there for about 7-8 hours, but it went by so fast. We group hugged for a night well spent and I'm pretty sure we all left feeling elated. It was an awesome day. Later geeks!

Most, but not all of our new Living Room members. These guys are awesome!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens!!!!!!!!!!

(Warning: Spoilers Ahead)
Star Wars!!!!  After a 10 year gap we finally receive a new entry into the now Disney owned Star Wars franchise!  So it is apt that the new entry is called the Force Awakens.
The movie starts off 30 years from where the Return of the Jedi last left us.  The Empire has fallen and the Rebels have seemingly disbanded.  But from the ashes of the past, a new threat has risen.  Out of the fallen Empire, a new army called the First Order has spawned, threatening to finish off what the Empire set out to do –  eliminate the force by terminating the last known Jedi, Luke Skywalker.  But as the Empire has evolved so have the Rebels.  Led by General Leia Organa, the Resistance (or the new Rebels) aims to find Luke first, to stop the First Order.
We are told this story through two new main characters.  Rey, who is a scavenger on the planet Jakku, who harvests scrap metals to earn a meal.  Finn, a turncoat stormtrooper who realizes his purpose could be something more than j…

About The Lam

Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin', so we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know, it was kinda like old squares in the battle like you see in the calendar named "The Battle of Waterloo" and the idea was: shark comes to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces. You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand.…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3!!!!!!!!!!!! (PS4)

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is Activision’s latest entry into the bestselling Call of Duty franchise.  Developed by Treyarch Studios, the Black Ops subseries of Call of Duty games has been considered by many as the best of the COD games.  Whereas Black Ops 1 and 2 were direct sequels, BO3 seems only to be a spiritual sequel to its predecessors.  There is no direct or clear continuation of story from the previous entries.  Rather it takes the ideas of mind control and manipulation, and spins off its own story.
It’s a futuristic world, where humans are infused with technology (much like Robocop!) and fight alongside and against robots.  This time around, you assume the role of an unnamed soldier, who together with your partner Hendricks and a CIA agent named Rachel Kane, track down a former Black Ops commander named John Taylor as he and his former squad appears to have gone rogue destroying CIA sites around the world.  The story will take you to Singapore, Egypt and even wackier, you’ll …
